First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®

Registered Practitioner and Tutor

In Class Workshops


Steven is a First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® qualified teacher, practitioner and Diploma holder. He has been teaching the workshops since 2017. First Light® Flower essence workshops are taught in Auckland and Hamilton. There are 10 study units which are covered over 5 weekends throughout a calendar a year. They consist of First Light® Flowers, Ferns, Trees, Seeds and Plants workshops. They are taught in this order in both Auckland and Hamilton, but they do not have to be taken sequentially. Each workshop is fully certificated and is a stand alone workshop, for example a student may begin with a First Light Trees workshop.

Each weekend comprises two study units. For example First Light® Flowers – Flowers of Transformation workshops NZNFE 101 & 102 are taught on a Saturday and Sunday respectively. Each study unit is a stand alone workshop so students can choose to attend on the Sunday or second day only, however it is recommended that both study units are taken consecutively.



What students have to say

It has been an amazing experience in an in class workshop, thanks Steven.
I loved experiencing the way the essences jump out when putting together blends, it's quite remarkable.
I enjoyed interacting with the other students. I learnt so much and we had incredible discussions. .
